Okay, easy one here....and I would say anything in the neighborhood would be good enough.

Today is June 15th. If the Bucs win the next 4, they will be above .500.

Name the last time, the Bucs have been over .500 after June 19th. The month and year will be close enough.

I'm pretty sure they were over .500 in early July, 1999.

Yes indeed they were, but they have been over .500 more recently than that too.

They made it to .500 about this time three years ago, defeating the Rays to go to 30-30. They didn't go over .500, though.

Indeed they did....Back in 2005, they beat the Rays 18-2 (wasn't there a huge brawl in that game?) to go 30-30, then promptly lost the next 5, and went 37-65 the rest of the way!

If anyone cares, the answer was August 15, 1999, when they were 59-58.

Yes, my son and I were at that game, and Eduardo Perez took acception to Oliver Perez's antics on the mound. I remember thinking, WOW, we might be OK. Then interleague play happened the next week, with trips to Fnway and the Bronx, I believe, and it was back to reality.

I was at that game with my sons, as well. There was a local kid who had just got called up to the Rays and he got us some freebies. I remember the place was packed and I kept thinking what the place would look like if we were contending. That's when I learned the difference between bad baseball town and just plain bad baseball.
